Durmitor National Park is Montenegro’s largest protected area, which constitutes of a landscape shaped by glaciers, numerous rivers and underground streams. It is bordered by the Tara River Canyon, which is the deepest canyon in Europe.

FAQs

Should I hike alone?
Generally, it is not recommended to hike alone, especially if you choose one of the harder tours. Durmitor is mostly well marked but either way, a guide is recommended for safety reasons and he could provide information about the mountain.
Can I go in short sleeves and short pants?
If the weather is sunny and nice, you can, but be careful not to get sunburns on exposed skin. However, weather conditions on the mountain can be quite unpredictable, hence, have some warmer clothes with you. Also, a rain jacket is recommended.
Can I hike in my snickers?
You could use snickers on easier tours, but for medium and harder tours hiking boots are essential. You will be walking for a longer period of time over rough terrain,  and with hiking boots, there is less chance of slipping or twisting your ankle.
Where can I leave my car?
It depends on the tour since some tours do not start in Zabljak. You can drive your car to the starting point or you can leave the transportation to us.
How much water do I need?
It depends on the tour. For medium and hard tours, make sure to carry at least 1 liter of water, especially when it’s sunny. In communication with your guide, you will be informed about how much water you need and are there any springs on your tour.
Which is the highest peak at Durmitor?
The highest peak of Durmitor is Bobotov Kuk (2523 meters above sea level).
Are there any wild animals which we can see?
Encounters with wild animals are rare, but it may happen. You don’t have to be afraid, since you could usually meet wild goats, only. Dangerous animals (wolfs, bears) are hard to see because most of the time, they avoid contact with humans.
Are there any water springs?
There are few tours with springs on the way, but if summer is dry, it can happen for them to dry up, so it is always good practice to bring enough water for the day.
Do I need a map?
If you are hiking with the guide, you don’t need a map, but it is nice to have it if you like to orientate in the mountain.
Do I need National Park ticket for the hike?
There are few checkpoints for buying a ticket, so it depends on the tour chosen. It may happen that NP workers ask you to buy it even deep in the mountain.
Can I pay with the card?
Unfortunately, we don’t have this option, yet.
What should I bring?
Water, sandwich, chocolate or something sweet, jacket, hat and your camera. And of course, one bag for your trash. Make sure not to leave anything behind yourself, besides your footprints.
Will my cell phone work during the hike?
It depends on the place. Somewhere it will work, but somewhere the signal will be poor or even there won’t be the signal at all.
What if I suffer from fear of height or any health problems?
After consultation with our guides, the right tour for you will be chosen.
